I'm a 24-year-old male & I'm just wondering, how many grafts would be needed to fill in the temporal corners? (photos)

Ask a Surgeon During a Consultation
Thank you for providing photos along with your question. As you've said, the extent of your procedure would be minor, and the estimate you've provided may well be accurate. However, it's important to have your scalp examined closely during a consultation with a surgeon who has performed similar transplant procedures to the temporal corners. Check before-and-after photos for results that match what you want to achieve, as well. One more thing to keep in mind: If you regularly wear your hair as short as it is in the photos, you will likely want to go with the NeoGraft (FUE) method to avoid any horizontal scar lines on the back of your scalp. Good luck!
Photos cannot assess if you would be a candidate for surgery. Usually this involves seeing a doctor in person.

If you were told you may need 1200 to 1500 grafts it may be reasonable but what happens if you continue to lose more hair as you age? You have to also understand your results may not be worthwhile if you keep your hair so short.
Hair transplant surgery is not always about "how many grafts". It is about you understanding what is possible and having realistic expectations.
Filling in the temple corners
From the pictures you supplied, it looks like you have developed a mature nale hairline and you should think twice about changing it

Thanks for the question. It all depends on the size of the area and how thick you want the results to be. A 1200-1500 graft procedure should be fine.
